ywca speaking picI am incredibly excited and honored to inspire, motivate, and educate through speaking engagements. If you are a college, law school, community organization, business, or conference, I’d love the opportunity to work with you.

I have been booked to speak as a panelist as well as for individual keynote presentations.

What You Can Expect

My team and I aim to provide an enjoyable experience for your audience and for you, the event planner. Here is what you can expect:

A great experience during the presentation: I am an ardent believer in delivering presentations full of passion, excitement, and most importantly, practical & actionable information.  I aim to inspire and enlighten, not bore and dampen.

A great experience before and after the presentation:  I understand that planning an event can be stressful and involves a lot of moving parts. I strive to make the coordination process as simple as possible before the presentation. If applicable, I am more than happy to provide your audience with any presentation materials following the presentation.
